1 ½ cups almonds (soaked and toasted in the oven)
½ cup walnuts
½ cup cocoa butter or coconut oil, or a mixture of the two
½ cup crunchy nut butter
½ cup goji berries
¼ cup shredded coconut
¼ cup flax meal/ground flax seeds
a dash of vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
handful of cacao nibs
6 drops liquid stevia (or more to taste)
Pulse nuts, flax, coconut, nut butter and salt in a food processor until coarsely ground. Gently melt* the coconut oil or cacao butter and add it to the food processor along with remaining ingredients. Pulse to create a coarse and pasty mixture. Press mixture into an 8 x 8 glass baking dish. Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour, until mixture hardens. Cut into bars and store in refrigerator.
*gently melt coconut oil by placing glass jar into warm water long enough to pour and measure
